I can't fault this hotel, the location is great, the rooms clean and comfortably furnished and the dining was good too. Obviously it's expensive but with so little of the coastline available in the city this hotel is really the best option. The precinct of small reataurants below the hotel has some interesting dining options too.

My room was ready and very impressive facing the sea on the 18th floor and a bed to die for literally. I sunk into it and looked around the room...

Unmistakable in its grandeur as it stands unobstructed on the shores of the city, the W is a good choice for visitors seeking a bit of beach life mixed with the trendy vibe that often is a mainstay of these hotels. It's still relatively new at just 5 years old and is the brainchild of architect, Ricardo Bofill (also responsible...

There is nothing that can be faulted with this hotel except the mood lighting in the rooms is too dim and it is out of town a bit. However it is a lovely walk along the foreshore into the centre of town. Also extremely helpful and nice staff.

The hotel is very modern and the service great. The veiws from the rooms are very nice . In general a mix between holiday and business. Taxis are available and within 30 to 40 minutes from the major centras . The food and surroundings offer various options and a good place to be. Will definitely visit again.

Staying in Barceloneta

Neighbourhood Profile
Barceloneta
Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away, Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed sand structures making this the most visited beach in the city (the shirtless men working out might help too). You’ll know by the delicious aroma that you're in the right place to try some of the best and most authentic seafood including paella, Spain’s national dish.
